Traveling with your pet!

Traveling with your pet can be very stressful whether it is domestic or international travel. In this page we want to help guide you on what websites to look for and what information you need before your appointment with us for your travel needs! 

Dr. Garg, Dr. Adams and Dr. Pouriani are all USDA accredited and nationally certified for your travel certificates and needs. 

What to expect

Before your visit we ask that you personally research what is needed for where ever you plan on traveling to, you might've been directed to this page by our receptionist to help guide you to the process of being able to research what is needed for your travels.

                     >If you are confused and would like additional assistance please give us a call, we can set up and Veterinary Technician phone consult (please contact                                 office for fee) so we can further explain your travel needs and help you figure out what the next steps are for you. 

You will complete a traveling document that Urban Pet Hospital will provide, this will give us all the information needed to be able to assist you in creating the best plan to get all your documentation together for your travel needs.

Domestic Traveling
When traveling domestic the USDA APHIS(United States Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service) has provided a website where you can visit and view what every state requires from you when arriving and traveling to this state. 
https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel

Some states require a CVI (Certificate of Veterinary Inspection) in order to be able to enter the state, Urban Pet Hospital is able to process these certificates for you via online.
We are also able to provide a regular Health Certificate in case they require one!

Airline Requirements

We also recommend going on your airlines website and assure that you meet all of your airlines recommendations. Some require health certificates while other don't so calling and checking in with their requirements before your appointment at Urban Pet Hospital can help us get you and your furry friend ready for travel!

                                  > Emotional Support Animals

                                     Some airlines require that an ESA form be filled out before your travels with them. We recommend that you research whether your airline would                                       require this and be prepared for this form to go home with you after your visit with Urban Pet Hospital!

International Traveling

International Traveling can be extremely stressful, please allow us to try and guide you to the best of our knowledge to the right steps for a successful, stress-free travel experience!

The link below (same to the domestic travel link) is the USDA APHIS website that will tell you exactly what is needed for the arrival to the country of your choosing. 

https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel

It will direct you to the country and you will follow the prompts, if you are traveling with your pet assure to click that option and follow their prompts for the correct requirements necessary.

Rabies Titer Testing

At this time Urban Pet Hospital is working with Kansas State Serology testing which we are able to ship Mon-Wed, we are able to obtain the sample and hold in clinic but we are only able to ship Mon-Wed. Kansas State can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks in order to get their results. This can impede on your traveling plans, please keep this in mind when booking your appointment. There are many countries that can require this type of testing, the link above can guide you to whether you may need this testing to travel. At this time we are NOT submitting lab samples to Auburn University, we have plans to start the option soon but have not set it as an option. 

USDA Certifications

You will need to have all your certificates endorsed by APHIS (USDA office), due to COVID19 they have changed their protocols and procedures. They require appointments or mail-in options only. We recommend that you give them a call and assure that you can have this appointment (or mailed in) done in time for your travels. We have no ability to submit documents online at this time - we are working on getting that available but at this time it is not an option

Tapeworm (Echinococcus multilocularis) Treatment

Your country of travel may require that you receive a tapeworm treatment so many days before your travel date, it is important that you plan for the amount of time it takes for you to arrive to your final destination when receiving this treatment. We recommend that you do this treatments 2-3 days before your actual travel date if time allows.
